While scrolling through the archives, I just found
the post by Elm mentioning the "twinning" effect he had on his Aril X bearded
I had the same phenomenon occur last summer when I
was lining out my bearded iris seedlings. It seems to me it was a cross
involving SDB's, possibly CHUBBY CHEEKS x INVISIBLE. Then again, it might
be a TB cross, too.
The funny thing is ( and I suppose it's because I'm
a "budding" hybridizer, and I catch every detail I can), I noticed it when the
seedlings were only about 2 or 3 inches tall. These two just "stuck"
together when I took them out of the pot. I ran to the barn, and washed
them off with a spray hose, and they were connected at the base, where the
rhizome would be forming.
Funny me, I didn't take a picture of it!!!
Must've been busy that day . . .
But I think I can find it again, since I gave my
seedlings lots of space. so if I do, I'll dig it up and post a photo
of it. I, too, would like to find out if the blooms will be identical or
different from each fan!
